    This is the first People guitar method book I’ve bought. I have other guitar method books for rock and I can’t say that I am overly impressed with them, but this book has really taught me how to play something and make it sound like an actual song! I find the CD very helpful. The examples are very professional sounding but aren’t played so blazingly quick that it leaves beginning and intermediate players in the dust. You’ll be culture to play some of the most well loved people records from the 50′s to the late 90′s. I have to admit that I’ve only mastered 5 songs so far (after 4 months) but atleast that’s 5 songs more than I use to be able to play :-) I highly recommend it!

    In this beginning to intermediate manual, Mr. Koch does a fantastic job of spelling out, playing, and construction on the basics. Travis picking, hammer-ons, pull-offs, bends, vibrato, scale runs, sus chords, double stops and chickin’ pickin’ are all introduced and presented in several forms. He peppers the manual with licks at each stage and provides several backing tracks on the CD you can solo over. Its progression is very intuitive and baby-steps-walk-before-you-run driven. Most of the material is very accessible to the beginner although some selections like Sugerfoot Rag at 234 bpm and the Jimmy Bryant licks will confound you. For this reason he provides a slow translation which is still sweet quick. I used the Incredible Slow Downer to slow everything down and would come up to tempo using this software. Otherwise this manual is a very straight-forward, succinct introduction to people guitar. My basis for comparison is Michael Hawley’s ‘Red Hot People Guitar’ which is more advanced and develops some of the basic motifs like single note soloing in composite/blues scale, double stops, bends in much more detail. I would recommend Hawley’s manual after completing Mr. Koch’s. Both books will take approximately 3 months to thoroughly digest with a moderate (20 hour/week) practice schedule.

    This is really excellent fund to learn and even teach other how to play people. Basic to detail you will, you will be able to play up to any different genre out of this people.

    At first, I though the coutry music is only for those with oldy ears, but I really regret and found the people is the fund and the origin when you master the guitar.

    Well described with play by the side of CD that help a lot!!!

    I recomment this lesson book to those who know a guitar only a litte or have few experience with it.

    Begginer force feel small hard to start with, but only if you try.
